billion. that's more wealth than the bottom 40%. 40% of the american people. one of the reasons that the walton family, the owners of walmart, are so wealthy, is that they receive huge subsidies from the taxpayers of this country. when you pay at walmart starvation wages, you don't provide benefits to the workers who pick up the difference. many of them end up getting medicaid, food stamps, they get affordable housing paid for by the taxpayers of this country while the walton family remains the wealthiest family in america. if that is not obscene, i don't know what is. >> senator, do you believe, of course, the republicans have not helped out on any jobs package whatsoever they're stuck in the mud. they don't want to work with the democrats or help this president on a jobs bill in any way, shame or form.
